Last Thursday, I went to Sanrio's 50th Anniversary "Small Gift" Event. We went an hour earlier and already, there was a line forming for the 7:30pm opening. Inside, VIP guests were given free gift bags and goodies galore. Free wine, alcohol, Pink's Hot Dogs, Beard Papa cream puffs, Oi Ocha Green Tea, ferris wheel rides, mini golf, and Sanrio photobooth! A few notable celebrities present were Lisa Ling, Pete Wentz, Ashley Simpson, Jason "Mayhem" Miller, Kimora Lee Simmons, and Eric Estrada. Besides being surrounded by cuteness, my absolute favorite part of Small Gift was the group art show. My favorite artwork came from Joe Ledbetter, Kozyndan, Audrey Kawasaki, Nouar, and Paul Frank. I was particularly excited for Audrey and Kozydan's pieces since I've been a fan for years.
Somehow, I took over 700 photos. I narrowed it down to 308 so if you'd like to see more, please visit here. If only I had known about the cream puffs earlier, I would've taken less pictures and eaten more puffs.
